“Disruptivator” Summer Camp Opportunities
“During summer vacation, many students lose knowledge and skills. By the end of summer, students perform, on average, one month behind where they left off in the spring. Summer learning loss disproportionately affects low-income students,” according to a Rand Education and Wallace Foundation study. Usher’s New Look seeks to minimize or eliminate this loss by providing summer programming to expose students to various careers and enrichment opportunities.
- Youth Entrepreneurship Boot Camp – In collaboration with Free to Be, Inc., Usher’s New Look is hosting their 2nd annual Entrepreneurship Boot Camp. The program instills the possibility of a future business vocation and develops the entrepreneurial spirit. Activities range from public-speaking development, round-table discussions, business-plan development, marketing and business branding, financial-literacy education and our unique Business Pitch competition.
- Camp New Look Camp – New Look provides immersion into the pillars of UNL—talent, education, career and service. Our program helps students develop goals and learn the skills and cultural nuances that help them achieve those goals.
- Code Kids Rock – Students will be immersed in the world of robotics, engineering, and programming through the use of many mechanical components such as circuit boards, motors, and more. During this course, students will learn the fundamentals of engineering and mechanics.
- Math Immersion – Mathematics is in everything that we do. During this session, students will be building Lego structures along with measuring their surface area and/or volume and create tasty treats, using accurate measurements and science principles. Lego master builder as guest speaker.
Cost Per Student – only $140 for a camp!!!
